Okay, okay... I don't HAVE a private life. I am fairly open about everything. That's why I'm confused and amused with this topic.
I have recently been treated to commentary about what my "dating life" must be like. I've decided that perhaps I should try to clear this up as much as possible, as I don't really have ANYTHING in the way of a dating life. Yes, this is by choice, but my life isn't nearly as glamorous as people seem to think it is.
I've noticed that when people talk to me about what they think my dating life is like, they seem to think of me as something along the lines of this:
I think I mentioned that most of my younger years were spent with my nose in a book, eating entirely too much candy, and playing video games (such as Mortal Kombat) with my guy friends. I never dated, I had no idea how to interact with "normal" people, and I was actually, one of the least sought after girls in my school. I remember an excellent occurrence when I overheard my name mentioned in a group of boys and the response was, "Ewww! Gross!" Thanks guys... HAHAHA!!!
The two men I've had ENORMOUS crushes on since my last "real" relationship were both the types that I normally would have lusted after when I was younger. They're crazy smart, they're somewhat quiet, and fairly reserved. This of course is incredibly alluring to me and causes me to pine after them. A week or so ago, I was asked why I like the stoic, disinterested type. My response was that there seems to be more going on there. Mainly because I don't know what they're thinking and it's fascinating to me. I love nerds. Crazy smart, tall(ish), stoic NERDS. Bonus points if they don't know I exist. In fact, my dream men probably wouldn't notice if I tore all my clothes off, lay in front of them, and asked them to take me right then. This is quite different from the men I have ended up in relationships with who are generally the ones that pursued me for a long period of time until I decided they must like me, right?
Yeah... I've talked about how well that's worked out before.
So.... in response to the discussions I've had over the last few weeks about men and my dating, I took the time to create a realistic depiction of what my dating life REALLY is like.
